2) Inability to enter Safe Mode / Advanced startup.
3) Messed up "Personalization" window - some themes missing and wrong names.
4) Messed up text "Language Bar", displaying DLL file names.
5) Probably more unseen.

Consequently, I've tried running "sfc /scannow", twice. It found corruption but was unable to fix anything.
After restoring my system to an earlier point, I've confirmed that this utility is the exact and sole cause.
Once again- I mean, great support AMD, thanks.


This is what someone experienced in another forum... and I have to say I have the same issue.

My settings for my taskbar changed. Now I am unable to look at power options... I am also unable to go into safe mode.

Can those of you with Windows 8 and used the utility... try going to your power options and see if you are able to change any settings?

What mine looks like....





Then after doing a system restore... to right before I used the utility it was working fine:

This is what worked for me also.

No more ATIMan, manual removal, Driver Sweeper and the like. A first-party, supported cleaning utility. smile.gif

I do not think so !

This tool works like Catalyst Install Manager, is the same.

ATIMan and Driver Sweeper is more more deep and very useful softwares without any errors.

Proof? If it was the same as the catalyst uninstaller why would they bother.
